Useful information, I'm going to the Joe for my first time too for the Jan 31st game against the Caps, I'm excited about it!
How early do the doors open and can I bring my camera? I'm gonna want to take pictures of practice. We have seats in the nosebleeds but I read above that the ushers will let you down to watch practice (another question I had, lol). I want to wander around and check out the concourse too
The doors usually open about an hour before the game. Yes, most definitely take your camera. There are certain restrictions on lens length but you can get that info on the Wings website. Yes you can go down by the glass and take pictures. That's what so great about the Joe, not like the United Center where unless you have tickets in the lower bowl they won't let you (btw screw the Hawks and the United Center).
The Joe may be old but you'll never forget it. Will be a sad day when they build the new one and tear this one down .

There will definitely be streams out there. Should there be a separate thread for "who needs a pm wink wink nudge nudge" so the GDT doesn't get overrun with requests? Mods? Is that even appropriate?
I offered to help out last night and got about 35 pm's in a two minute span haha. Any separate thread would immediately set a record on LGW for most posts per minute in a single thread. That much activity would likely destroy the interweb and potentially tear a hole in the space-time continuum as well. We'd better steer clear.
Somehow, the Wings have strived AND succeeded without Lidstrom, without Holmstrom, without Bertuzzi, without Helm, and without DeKeyser. Somewhere along the line in this shortened bastardized season this ragtag, crippled, makeshift, old and slow, rookie-peppered bunch of hockey players became a TEAM. A team that has taken the number one hockey squad in the world to a seventh game. Still nobody much is talking about them with any sense of what it took for them to get where they are.
It simply doesn't matter. Anybody with a penchant for sports history will be talking about this team in years to come, and they will get their due. They are a miracle of their own making. I am so very proud to be here in this moment. To savor their valor, and experience the thrills and chills at their very Trying.
I love you Detroit Red Wings. Thank you so much for who you are, and what you have become. And I am so very proud and honored to be one of your fans.
That is overkill, plain and simple, and it probably does come from a sense of insecurity. I want this pontifying POS to eat it and choke on it. I want the same thing to happen to him and his team that happened to Woody Paige the time he thought it was the Right and Proper Thing to Do to dismiss the opponent with a flick of his pen.
GO, WINGS. Read this and do some of your own ripping and tearing. You KNOW you can do this.
